How Many Books of the Same Trope Have You Read in a Row?

Act Like It by Lucy Parker

I have a confession to make. I realized this week that I've read 5 “fake relationship” books in a row over the last few weeks. This may be a new record and I think I may have a problem. 

Okay, just kidding, if I have a “problem,” it's not one I'm willing to address when it comes to finding books featuring my favorite tropes. However, even I was shocked with how many I'd been able to score in a row!

So what about you? How many books featuring the same trope have you been able to read in a row?

Tell me about it in the comments!

Like I mentioned, fake relationships are my jam so I recently recently read about 5 in a row!

Well... as people who IRL know me can confirm, I get lost in book binges occassionally, and normally they are ALL classic category length romances. So there have been weekends where I've read like 7 fated mates in a row. Or that Iris Johansen spiral over a long weekend that was all her Virgin!heroine books...all day...without pause.

I'm also on a fake relationship binge and I'm obsessed. However, I've ran out of books with this trope. Would love to hear about what you've been reading Jennifer!

P.S. I loved Act Like It by Lucy Parker!!!

Hi Melany Im! Yay! It's one of my favorite tropes. This week I read:
Her Naughty Holiday by Tiffany Reisz
Size Matters by Alison Bliss
Act Like It by Lucy Parker (obviously ???? )
From this Fae Forward by AE Jones (for a paranormal twist!)
Worked Up by Tessa Bailey (which is also a marriage of convenience... it's a few tropes in one)

And one of my all time faves that I read a few months ago:
Pretend You're Mine by Lucy Score

I also recently went through a marriage of convenience and boss/secretary romance phase.

I too have a tendency to glom authors or tropes when I read a good one, so this is common for me. The last was a suspense series by Beverly Connors. I also did the rock star-oridnary gal after reading the series by Nalini Singh. Alas, too soon I run out of books and must look to a different trope!

Do chocolate books count? I recently re-read almost all of Laura Florand's books; many of them deal with chocolate.

I don't really have a trope preference but having discovered Lynne raye Harris, kaylea cross, Dianna love and Toni Anderson I read the entire back catalogues in one swoop. So I suppose military/law enforcement covers those. I also love paranormal so read the entire widdershins by Jordan L Hawk in one go. Followed by her Spectre series 1

@Melany Im, and I unwittingly started a third one: Trust by Jana Aston. Sigh. I really do have a problem!

I have caught myself stringing second chance story after second chance story across contemporaries and Regencies over weeks. Not sure what my high score would be, but definitely double-digits.
